070. Mean Girls: "So you can go shave your back now. It's like ASMR."

May 16th, 2022

Laura Marie has a confession: this recording is the first time she had ever seen Mean Girls all the way through AND not edited for tv. She's ashamed. Jessica Marie saw this movie in the theater and, rightly so, has been obsessed ever since. While the entire movie is a meme, is quotable, and unforgettable, you might be surprised how much was taken out for TV and how much ick there is. There's a bit more homophobia, fat shaming, and sexism than we all remembered which is unfortunate. What isn't unfortunate is that this movie stays relevant every October, every time we hear Jingle Bell Rock, every time someone gives a compliment, and every time we remember what high school Valentine's Day was like.

You go Glen Coco.
